BP COVER CONCECPTUAL THOUGHTS

Baseball Prospectus had commissioned me to design digital magazine covers for the 2016 Major League Baseball Hall of Fame Inductees. Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza were the new inductees. I wanted to find iconic imagery of both of these players. One of my favorite images and to me the most iconic, is the famous Ken Griffey swing. Anyone from the ’90’s remembers Griffey’s big smile and big stretched out swing.

For each of these two covers I also wanted to digitally make the images look like a painting. I used muted colors, textures and sketch-like aesthetics throughout. These layouts were well received by the publications subscribers and the client I was working with.
